Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Sacramento County was established in 1991, via a task force initiated by the Presiding Judge of the Juvenile Court, to provide support, mentorship, and a "voice in court" for youth in foster care. We match one caring adult volunteer with one vulnerable child. Since 1991, CASA Sacramento has served 3,950 children in foster care with 1,815 volunteer advocates who have contributed over 248,200 volunteer hours. Advocates ensure that the Juvenile Court system, designed to promote the safety and well-being of families, is personalized to meet the needs of children struggling with histories of trauma from neglect and abuse. CASA Volunteers help counteract trends of substance abuse, criminal activity, and homelessness in the foster youth population. Volunteers build a relationship by spending one-on-one time with their youth. They investigate the youth's needs by visiting the youth's placements to assess safety and stability. They establish regular communication with social workers, parents, attorneys, teachers, foster families, and therapists on the youth's case. A record 310 children were served in 2020 at CASA Sacramento.


Ensuring consistency and support for children in the foster care system through the use of volunteer advocates advancing the best interests of each child.


21+ Volunteer advocates of all genders, experience levels, educational backgrounds.
